Not All Linens Are Equal: Sömn Linens vs “The Other Guys”

In the age of crowded online options for your bedding. You could buy the “standard” cotton and polyester sheets and end up replacing them several times a year, or you could purchase high-quality natural linen bedding which will last years and will actually help you sleep more soundly because they are more comfortable and you know they’re a sustainable, eco-friendly choice. 

But just because it says “linen” in big bold letters on the description, doesn’t mean you’re getting 100% natural, low-impact, premium eco-friendly linens. To understand the difference, it’s important to first understand the benefits of pure, naturally-sourced linen: 

Benefits of 100% Natural Linen Bedding

Natural linens have so many characteristics that make them a great luxury, comfortable bedding option:

  • Hypoallergenic: If you have sensitive skin, you’ll enjoy these sheets.
  • Moisture-wicking: They will wick away sweat and moisture.
  • Temperature Regulating: Keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
  • Antibacterial: When properly cared for, linens are naturally antibacterial.
  • Softness: Unlike other fabrics like regular cotton or polyester, natural linens actually get better and softer with age. 
  • Anti-static: No need to use anti-static dryer sheets or balls when washing natural linens.
  • Fast-drying: Wash, dry, and re-make your bed on the same day!

Not all linens are the same

Be careful of deceptive businesses that claim they’re selling you “linen” sheets because if you look at the fine print, they may only contain a slight percentage of linen or may not be as natural, soft, or sustainable as you think. Some brands source or produce linen fabric outside of Europe so be sure of what you are buying into by vetting your linen sheets to fit your needs.

Here are the key differences between the premium, luxury linens at Sömn Home, and the “other” guys.

  • Sömn Linens prioritize LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT. Deliberately centralizing the processes of spinning, dyeing, weaving, finishing, and sewing the majority of our linen bedding in a single facility sets us apart in the contemporary textile industry, minimizing our carbon footprint. Our commitment extends to every aspect, including sustainability in branding, packaging, and shipping materials. In contrast, some competitors manufacture their linens in multiple facilities and employ less eco-friendly packaging.

  • Sömn Linens epitomize NATURAL ECO-FRIENDLINESS. Comprising solely of 100% pure premium European linen, our linens stand as a testament to their environmentally conscious origin. In contrast, some competitors may compromise by blending lower-grade fibres and subjecting their fabrics to harsh chemical processes.

  • Sömn Linens' flax fibers are meticulously CRAFTED IN EUROPE, ensuring authenticity and quality. We exclusively utilize certified premium European linen—from flax to fabric—ensuring our bedding embodies the genuine European experience, delivering unparalleled comfort.

  • Sömn Linens feature a stonewashed finish, ensuring UNPARALLELED SOFTNESS from day one—a distinctive quality that sets us apart. As an added bonus, our linens require no ironing after the first wash, providing both comfort and convenience.

  • Sömn Linens are MINDFULLY DESIGNED, with premium materials carefully sourced and crafted to provide the ultimate comfort through a superior fabric hand.

  • Sömn Linens are TRACEABLE and Oeko-Tex Certified, ensuring the provenance of our premium linen fibre grown in Europe. This natural and sustainable fibre is cultivated without artificial irrigation, and it is GMO-free, attesting to our commitment to quality and eco-friendly practices.

  • Sömn's ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT is tangible. In addition to our focus on product design and production, we take pride in actively participating in Shopify's Sustainability Fund. Through our contributions, we support initiatives that aim to reduce and offset transportation emissions, restore forests, enhance soil health, and actively remove carbon from the air. With every Sömn purchase, you play a role in fostering a cleaner, greener future for us all—a philosophy we proudly shared on the Marilyn Dennis Show.

Authentic, sustainable linen bedding is the perfect choice for the environmentally conscious person and family. With proper care, they can last for years and get softer as the years go by.
